Leeds International Film Festival comes to Bramley

It’s lights camera, action … at Bramley Elderly Action!

The glamour of Leeds International Film Festival – the largest film festival outside London – will be coming to Bramley Lawn next month.

‘Older active film-makers: Cinage at Bramley Lawn’ will run from 1.30-3.30pm on Saturday 14th November and is a screening of 10 short fictional films made by older people in Leeds, Italy, Portugal and Slovenia, on the European Cinage project.

The shorts reveal an experienced and varied perspective on the world.

The films will last about an hour in total. Some of the film-makers will be present to discuss their experiences and answer questions, and attendees will be able to find out how they could get involved in learning how to make a film.

Grab a coffee and a bacon buttie at the Bramley Lawn cafe before the films, and stay for a slice of cake and a post-film discussion with some of the film-makers.

This is a free event. Any donations to Bramley Elderly Action will be welcomed.
